Year end bonus: The gift you give yourself
If you decide to change jobs next year, or just want to make more money where you're at, remember to factor in the real value of that pile of cash called an "incentive plan."

They might be in town just for the convention and, heck, would you snub your buddy if he wants to join you for lunch? No, of course not. But what about networking?
